Nice and cozy, really beautiful. Would always reccomend it! It is really clean, the service is great, it's peaceful and I had a really great night sleep there. Then you have some great shakes and you really feel at home.

We came to Ocean View straight from our flight and stayed 2 nights here at the start of our trip and 1 night at the end. It was a great introduction to Sri Lanka with the beach just a few minutes walk away, lots to do in town and the airport close by. The rooms are clean and modern with... More

This was the first stay in Sri Lanka. I am glad to have chosen Ocean View. It was a short 15-20 minute ride from the airport to the guest house. It is close by a few restaurants and other businesses. The check-in was quick and easy. I was shown directly to my room. I had an A/C room on the... More

Hot shower, a clean and comfortable room and a friendly welcome. The owner was very helpful imparting local knowledge and helping arrange transport to Kandy. I may just swing by before leaving Sri Lanka

Clean, comfortable rooms with hot showers and extremely friendly service. Provided an extra mattress for our room free of charge. Good value for money in comparison to other guesthouses in the area. Allowed us to store baggage before our flight with complimentary use of a washroom and shower. Would definitely stay here again.

Quite noisy for sleeping once the traffic starts in the morning (and it starts early!). Breakfast was fairly average; didn't feel that we were made particularly welcome or given much information considering it was our first day in Sri Lanka.

We booked ahead to make sure as we were going to the airport from Negombo and wanted to make sure we had a taxi sorted as we flew at 4am and I didnt want to haggling at this time of the day! Rooms were clean, nice balcony/garden, staff were helpful, the taxi was perfect, prices very good.

Luckily, we met up with Joseph Thamel who, with his son Mark (Sujeewa) ran The Ocean View Guest House and Tourist travel service and who spontaneously offered to help us. This was, and has... More
